Question: Did Jesus suffer in hell when He descended there? I heard a Bible teacher say that Jesus burned in hell between His death and resurrection to help pay for our sins.
Answer: No, Jesus did not burn in hell. When Jesus died on the cross, He cried out "It is finished" (John 19:30). Jesus finished paying for the sins of the world by dying on the cross, not by burning in hell.
After His death on the cross, Jesus descended into hell to proclaim his victory over the demon spirits which are now imprisoned, not to suffer for the sins of the world (1 Peter 3:18-19). Jesus did not burn in hell before He was resurrected.
